If you found yourself on Western Avenue in Augusta about lunch time today you may have noticed a bunch of blue t-shirt wearing students making their way around St. Michaels Catholic School. It was hard to miss all those students...but what was going on?

It was a walk-a-thon to help raise funds to help cover the cost for a family to spend time at the The Travis Mills retreat.

Due to the pandemic trying to get this years walk-a-thon off the ground was no easy task, according to centralmaine.com, a few parents from students at the school had students start walking a month ago and the second part was done today outside at the school in perfect weather.

Its was a huge success and the kids, parents, staff, and even Travis Mills was on hand for this great cause. The kids did some walking, running , and even participated in an obstacle course.
